Excursion to explore the new Vollmaxx technology
The part of INTEGRA, a.s. team Zbyněk Skácel, Daniela Vitásková a Anna Musilová, travelled behind the ocean to Virginia in the USA with aim to familiarize themselves with new technology from Jansen at the end of March.
This technology will be used in a renovated hall in Bantice. These are the so-called family cages Vollmaxx. The principle of family cages is a stable flock of hens with a suitable ratio of cocks without the need for insemination.
In Virginia, Ron Jöerissen (Hendrix Genetics BV), Ron de Zwarte (Jansen Poultry Equipment) and Liaqat Ali (Hendrix - ISA llc) made us a nice company. Together, we visited rearing farm and production farm with parents and grandparents flock in Piney River.
We had the opportunity to get acquainted with the rearing technology Rearmaxx, which can prepare the chickens for a laying season not only in family cages but also on the aviary and litter system. The next day, we surveyed the production farm with Vollmaxx technology, where we were familiar with how technology actually works. Both technologies proved to be a simple and fully functional system. Animals housed in both Rearmaxx and Vollmaxx were in very good shape.
We all liked the whole principle and idea of this technology. Personally, I am glad that this technology will soon be installed in our company, and even we will be the first one in Europe. A visit to a remote country has been beneficial not only for traveling but also for managers to work with new technology.
Thank you all for society, help and opportunity to participate.
